Welcome to the Science-Art Scumble! A collection of links showing the ever-evolving intersection of science and art, largely drawn from the Science Artists Feed. This marks Scumble #32.
Artists who create with fractals are kinda nuts. I mean, it’s like Minecraft in a blender a lot of the time, and the people creating it are almost…worshiping the process. Which is whacked out.
That said, I couldn’t deny the wonderful beauty of this piece, Bone Blossom by Troythulu when it came wandering through my Twitter feed. I really wanted to go on mocking fractal art, Troythulu: this artwork ruined that for me. *sigh*
You can find Troythulu’s creations on his blog The Call of Troythulu and on Twitter @Troythulu.
